UC Serves

UC Serves is a staff and faculty service initiative developed by Emerging Leaders in Student Affairs (ELSA) and the Center for Community Engagement (CCE).

UC Serves offers staff and faculty the chance to give back to the community while building a stronger network of colleagues on campus through the shared experience of intentional, focused service to the communities surrounding University of Cincinnati campuses. 

UC Serves 2022

In this transitional time, the UC Serves team encourages staff and faculty to connect with a service opportunity that meets their individual or team needs. You can select a time to participate that works best for your schedule, and choose a community partner that works on issues important to you.

Eligible faculty and staff may be able to earn Be Well UC points for their service. Contact Be Well UC for more information.
